for the general threat environment benghazi, and certainly against the overwhelming number of attackers and weapons they faced. the state department had not given benghazi the security, both physical and personal resources it needed. let me ask admiral mullen if you will please relate to you or specific findings. -- our specific findings. >> thank you, mr. ambassador. i appreciate your leadership throughout this process. good afternoon. the board found that the attacks and benghazi where security related. responsibility for the loss of life, the injuries and damage to u.s. facilities rest completely and solely with the terrorists who conducted the attacks. the board found the the security posture of the special mission compound was in adequate for the .hreat environment anin benghazi state department bureaus that were supporting benghazi had not taken on security as a shared responsibility. the support the post needed was often lacking and left at the working level to resolve. the buildings did not meet the department's standards for office buildings in high threat areas. it fell throug
, will this be a better environment for speaker boehner? there are these new members that are about to go to washington in january and they're watching the table being set and how both sides are plague off each other. what's your opinion come january? >> absolutely. the political environment will be much easier and here's why. you don't have a bombastic tea party leader, if you will, and adam west from florida and jim demint and you'll see a lot of new members coming in looking back at congress and saying, i don't even want any parts of that so moving forward i want to be able to move with the other side of the aisle to move pieces of legislation forward. look, 99.9% of what karen said i agree with, but the other 1% here and this is a strange situation to be in, is that a lot of republicans, god bless them, quite frankly, are not willing to give up on their principles and, you know, again, when you're a federal legislator here i admire that, but in order to move things across the ball here you have to be able to compromise here and you have to give up something here and i think in the 113th congress yo
calls and there is more resistant to sharing the news to be which is understandable in an environment where there are perceived threats but most of the polls, most of us have a pretty good methodology for how to incorporate cell phone use. but even with that, the cost goes up when you introduce cellphone into your survey. it is a more expensive process. one of the rules established -- a phenomenal thing they did was they cannot be automatically dialed so that makes the call centers operate more slowly. we reach a lot of folks on the cellphone. i think moving forward, a lot of the questions turn on whether or how we can incorporate some form of on-line interview in into the data collection process. there are a lot of folks who did mayor entirely and there are a lot of folks trying to do that. the biggest challenges being representative. it is not the case that every american is online. not every american is sophisticated enough to navigate and to a public opinion interview. one of the most common questions i get is why don't you use people's e-mail address? there is no place to sample
a plausible story. president know about that decreasing security environment? was he told about the attacks on the conflict of which he told about the 16 august cable where the investor said if he is attacked we cannot defend this place. what did the president know about the security environment in libya before the attack? during the attack, what orders did they make, why were they not carried out? and afterward, why did he pushed a story line that was misleading? as to ambassador rice, after this report, i hope the american people will understand that the story she told on 15 september was completely out of line with reality on the ground, and i believe firmly now more than ever that the story she told on five national television shows was more of a political story than informing the american people. the talking points -- who changed the talking points? he took out references to al qaeda? al qaeda references are all over the rim original report and all over the cables coming out of libya and tripoli. when she said security at the consulate was substantial, and strong, that was the furthest
watch your backstop, in anyone this your environment, before you fire at anybody. and so, every police officer, just because we wear a badge, we're not superheroes. it takes discipline and it takes training and then you expect, in a crisis, that we can perform at least to the levels that we've trained at. >> well, that's the hope. sheriff one final thing for you. i want to read you a quote, republican president dwight eisenhower who said back in 1957, "it will be a sad day for this country if children can safely attend their classes only under the protection of armed guards." what does that voice from the past say to you about today's america and your proposal? >> well, circumstances -- circumstances certainly have changed. do i want to see a teacher or a principal be armed? i don't. but this is a circumstance and the threat that we're presented with today. the same way, would we ever imagine asking pilots who are charged with this awesome responsibility of flying an aircraft, and yet here today, because i fly armed, i have to meet the pilots, and they say, sheriff, i'm armed. the othe

events like the one in newtown. first, the psychologist of the killer. second, the environment of violence in our culture. third, the easy access to guns. each of these might explain any single event, but what we should be trying to understand is not one single event, but why we have so many of them. let's look at the facts. according to the u.n.'s office on drugs and crime, the u.s. gun homicide rate is 30 times that of france or australia. it is 12 times higher than the average for other developed countries. why is that? if psychology is the main course, we should see that we have 12 times as many psychologically disturbed people as the average. we don't. in fact, america takes mental disorders seriously, treats them and doesn't stigmatize them. we do better in this area than most of our peers. is america's popular culture much worse than other rich countries? not really since it's largely the same popular culture worldwide. england and wales are exposed to cultural influences as the u.s. yet, their rate of gun homicide is some 3% of ours. the japanese are at the cutting edge

in that environment is to have it both ways. my view is there is too much classified information. my view is there is too much secrecy in general, and we should probably we think a lot of how we do it. i am inclined to want to see diplomats like susan rice to be as candid as possible with the public. there is another view on that, that we spell too many secrets. -- spill too many secrets. host: this goes back to the 9/11 commission and how intelligence is shared amongst agencies. guest: to me, it is one of these fascinating things that always comes up. whenever there is a catastrophe like 9/11 or the u.s.s. cole, everybody always says they did not share the information. one part of the government had one piece and they did not connect the dots. in the intelligence business, you're getting information from very technical sources or wiretaps or satellites that we do not want other people to know about. people in the business want to usually keep the stuff they collect in as small a group responsible in order to avoid the other big problem of moles and so forth. if you look at wikileaks, thi

in a high radiation and low thermal environment possibly get us to the far end of the solar system. >> nancy? >> not as much what i learned as my on conclusion. i think that gun violence in this country should be treated as domestic terrorism because i don't see any difference between these poor children that get killed in mass shootings and kids in urban areas that are caught in the cross-fire of gang warfare, of drug intimidation and even i see it all as the same kind of terrorizing of american citizens, innocents of all ages. >> i worry about that precisely because i worry that in the wake of tragedy, the policy positions we bring do not come with a sufficient level of rigor and analytical decision and conceptual clarity. we will talk tomorrow about trying to bring that clarity. my thanks to glenn, hina, spencer, and nancy. thanks for getting up. thank you for joining us today for "up." join us tomorrow, sunday morning at 8:00. i'll have former new jersey governor jim florio and dean baker from the center for economic and policy research. coming up, melissa harris-perry. reaction to the j
no rights to take their kids out of school to be home schooled or they don't have the environment to learn how to deal with the bullying and such. i'm upset because they're talking about gun control and posting people, you know, somebody that like an officer in each school. and they're afraid what their children are going to think about that. i mean, you have police officers in a bank that gaurneds your money. why wouldn't you want somebody that's trained inside your school? host: dave cullen? guest: well, the generational idea of that this generation of kids -- when i hear arguments like that i think that's really sort of -- well, when i hear that and somebody's sort of quickie explanation and it's all because of this, i think that's an unwillingness to look at the data and to look at the studies that have been done about people actually doing these killings. the secret service looked at every single one of them and i'll point out that they studied 6 years of data. that was -- 26 years of data. that's going to back to 1974. these have been going on for more than 30 years. so if we're talk
was a generation ago. it was a very different political environment. i mean, as we saw last week, house republicans are not really inclined to compromise on their core principles, which are keeping taxes low and the second amendment. so i think eleanor's right. the only way you can maybe get something passed is to pair it with, you know, other options that they would agree to. they'd say, okay, we're going to get more, you know, mental health resources to prevent this from happening again. and okay maybe we'll agree to some limits on guns. you know, related to that, i would point out that the nra's latest proposal would cost $7 billion according to my back of the envelope calculations. >> you mean to put police officers in every school? >> yeah. you've got 100,000 public schools. right now you have about a third of them that have armed security guards of one kind or another. so that means you've got two-thirds, 70,000, costs about $100,000 to pay a salary and benefits for a police officer so, that comes out to $7 billion. to put that in perspective, the fbi's annual budget is $8 billion. now, i don
